Flash Fiction: The Newcomer
The Pig went to the bathroom to be alone for a minute. Ever since the coronation they had been asking questions. Constantly. But the problem was he just did not understand what they were saying. He saw the mouths move but the words made no sense. Alone in the bathroom finally, he turned to the Oracle in the mirror. What should I do? Proclaim! said the Oracle. You are the king now. They will bend to your will. Your word is now the law and word of God. Have faith. Go Forth. Speak. Which is exactly what the new king did.
